jamie delaine, one of vancouver’s most kick-butt photographers and sweetest people i know of, asks “If you could visit one city in the world, leaving TOMORROW, where would you go?!!”
i’m weird. i really like to travel to unexpected places. the two most awesome trips of my life were a) a road trip of the southern u.s. states — la, ms, tn, nc, sc, ga, al — and b) to the czech republic and poland. both trips incited people to ask “WHY???” (as kylie would say, “why not?!”) i used to watch a lot of lonely planet shows with my dad, and i guess that’s why i love checking out these spots that you might not think of.
so, hopefully you can understand where i’m coming from when i tell you that my answer is antarctica. to be honest, i don’t even know if it’s possible to travel there — there are no actual permanent residents there, just government research stations, so i really don’t know how it would work… but antarctica must be the most breathtaking place on earth. as i showed in an earlier post, on the flight back from prague, i flew over greenland, and it almost made me cry. had i been standing on land, i would have been crying frozen tears. no one gets to see antarctica. i can close my eyes and picture what it’s like to know that you could walk for days and never see a building or a person or a car. really, antarctica is the only untouched place in the world, and i want to witness it.
plus, they have penguins. can you imagine seeing all those little penguins waddle around?!
look at this (and read the information), and it’ll be your dream too. )
